Four of us called in for lunch after a 7 mile walk. Friendly staff sorted us out with drinks and menus and unusually, we all ordered the same meal - fish pie. The dish looked OK but we had to remind the waitress that the meal included broccoli which was hurriedly organised. The fish pie was very disappointing with very... More

We are so disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meal at The Drum and it is indeed a shame none of your party tried any other dishes from our very popular "Pub Classics" menu. Our Head Chef assures me that the issue with the mash has been resolved for the future and we do hope that you will try us... More

The fish pie from the specials board was advertised as: Fish Pie with Salmon, Haddock and Prawns in Luxury White Sauce, topped with Creamy Mashed Potato with Garden Peas and Broccoli. In reality there was a reasonable amount of fish but it was almost tasteless and totally unseasoned served in a standard white sauce with nothing, e.g. cream, to make... More

We are so disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meal at The Drum. Unfortunately, on the same day of your visit another party made a comment about the Fish Pie & mash topping and our Head Chef now assures me that the issue has been resolved for the future. We sincerely hope that you will try us again soon. More

A great little pub with terrific food. Remember the days when pubs had chefs and not just microwaves and fat fryers? This is one of those. And the groupon voucher made it half price. It's a no brainer.

Visited on 4th January for lunch with friends on a Groupon deal. We were made very welcome in this lovely old pub, tucked away in a quiet part of Alderley Edge. The chef came to talk to us about menu choices and was very friendly and helpful. Carol was very attentive with drinks and food service. All of us were... More

What a gorgeous lunch in a beautiful relaxed pub. We had an amazing groupon deal but now will definitely be back as the prices are so reasonable anyway. Bring your appetite the portions are huge!

Went here today on a Groupon deal and the food and service was fantastic. Old owners have now gone and the new ones seem to be successfully tempting back their lost customers. The deal was for steak,but the chef Michael said it was ok to chose anything from the mains menu. We started with prawns pil pil,which were as good... More

we used to be regulars at the drum, having plenty of family meals there until the previous owners took over and created a horrible atmosphere throughout the pub, it's lovely to see the pub has new owners and is putting effort into making this Pub great again. We've been back a couple of times now, one night being bonfire night... More
